Hi I'm Christine.

I'm a mother to three boys, I'm a a graphic designer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My days are busy chasing after little boys. A few days a week I take a break and work from home as a graphic designer creating restaurant menus. I love my career so my "work" days feel more like my break days. I have a fantastic husband who takes good care of all of us and we love to do things together as a family.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a home where we were "Christian," but we didn't go to church or even talk about it much. My parents were divided about which religion to follow so they chose to let us figure things out on our own. I'm actually grateful that I had the opportunity to really search these things out for myself and not just follow a religion because of family tradition. I started attending the Mormon church when I was thirteen. I visited other churches with friends and family as well, but they couldn't give me the same feeling that I had at the Mormon church. I learned so much and was eager to continue learning. I put the teachings into practice and learned for myself that they were true. I developed a real relationship with my Heavenly Father and my Savior and I felt the influence of the Holy Ghost on a regular basis. I can't imagine living any other way now.

How I live my faith

I have served in many areas of the church, with the youth and the children as a teacher and as a leader of the women's organization. I just received a new calling to work with the cub scouts and I'm excited for the new opportunity. There I will be able to work with my own son and watch him grow and develop new skills. Most of how I "live my faith" happens at home. We have family prayers, scripture study and family night. We include gospel principles in everything we teach our children. We believe that we are all children of the same Heavenly Father and we respect others around us and seek to know and love them.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Christine.
A testimony is your own personal witness that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. You can have a testimony of individual doctrines of the Gospel and the Gospel as a whole. We learn little by little about different principles as we change and grow. Each time we learn more about something through our experiences and witnesses from the Holy Ghost we strengthen our testimony - or conviction - that it is real and true. Show more Show less
